Clemson to face unfamiliar foe in new-look Jackets

Georgia Tech boasts a rich history of football success with four claimed national championships, the last coming in 1990. But, in the Paul Johnson era it took on the identity as the triple option trap game.

Clemson has won four straight against the Yellow Jackets including a 49-21 swatting in Atlanta in 2018. This year however the Tigers will face a much different Georgia Tech football team.

Paul Johnson led the Jackets for over a decade with his famous option offense capturing an ACC title in 2009 and four Coastal Division championships in his tenure. But, in his final four seasons at the helm finished 24-25 with just two bowl appearances and one bowl win leading to an early retirement.
